to determine how to carry those out. white house spokesman jay carney warned that critics of nsa surveillance should be careful what they wish for. >> we're one attack away from assessments about what went wrong in our intelligence capabilities and collections. the work that's being done here saves lives. >> reporter: whether listening in on the leaders of close allies such as german chancellor merkel saves lives, the white house didn't have an answer. though it confirmed it is reassessing such high level surveillance as part of its overall intelligence review. on the hill today, european lawmakers went head-to-head with congressional leaders on nsa spying. the head of the delegation told me their discussion was frank. >> you had a very stern message to deliver. >> i think we had a very robust and strong message when we came to congress today. this bill which has come through the allegations is something that's [ inaudible ]. they feel very uneasy. they don't know why it's happening, why our strongest ally is doing it. >> reporter: today, they had more to talk about regarding spain, where the
and we're on the hook. jay carney took the podium. he also said the reason for all of this, the reason for six enrollees, is solely because of the website. here's carney. >> let me just tell you now, november 1st. we don't expect those numbers to be very high. we never did. they're going to be even lower because of the challenges we had with the website. >> that's interesting. then he says they never did know that because earlier in the week, the answer was the president had no idea that the website was not going to work. so they constantly try to have it both ways and that's annoying. i am surprised the experts seemed so surprised about consumer behavior. if you can't get on to the website you're not going to be able to shop around. that's not working. plus, when you go on, if you decide, juan, if you choose to lo look at the subsidies, you could get a generous subsidy, however, consumer behavior is one of, i don't want the hassle, i'm just going to sign up for medicaid. it might be a less generous subsidy, but that's what people do. once you get on medicaid, which is substandard, it
is how it was explained by jay carney. >> the universe that you're talking about here is 5%. the whole insurance market, 5% of the population. >> first of all that 5% is 15 million people. the whole obamacare is to get 30 million uninsured insured. secondly, is it just the individual market that will lose their policy? >> no, small business plans are being forced to pool their workers with a larger pool of other workers. many small businesses right now are dropping their insurance -- >> it's not just small business or individuals, there are big companies, time warner, ibm, series, k mart, walgreens. none of those people can keep their current policies. >> those are companies making decisions of how they want to insure people. before obama care they could drop coverage at any time. before obama care they didn't have to offer insurance to their people and many didn't. we have 50 million uninsured people, and most of those are workers who didn't have coverage. so before obama care. >> simple question, are they going to be able to keep their coverage. >> the president doesn't say seres, dr
've heard from carney briefly today, jay carney here. but the relationship the president has particularly with angela merkel, any kind of deal making? >> it makes it difficult and it certainly would give germany leverage to some degree in some of these discussions because the u.s. is in a position where it was caught doing something it had not previously acknowledged it was doing. how this ultimately plays out is a little difficult. we're still in early days since the revelations and sometimes these things do calm down a little bit. however, as we've seen with the snowden revelations they seem to gain momentum over time. what will be the main challenge for the obama administration is how to sort of restore this trust that germany and some of the other european leaders have talked about because they still do need germany to work with them on lots of key national security and economic issues. >> siobhan gorman, thank you very much. intriguing report. >>> developing as well right now, we're learning that a british man is under arrest in england charged with hacking into u.s. government compu

're just talking about 5% of americans. here's how it was explained by jay carney. >> this universe you're talking about here is 5%. that's the whole individual insurance market, 5% of the upon -- of the population. >> that 5% represents 15 million people. the whole obamacare is to get 30 million. and that's the holy grail. secondly, is it just the individual market that is going to lose their policies? >> no. small business plans are being forced under the new regulations to pool their workers with a larger pool of other workers. if they buy in the states regulated by the states, their insurance can go up quite a bit. they can lose their plans. lots of companies are facing this now. >> dr. emanuel, it isn't just small business or the individuals. there are -- forgive me, sir -- there are big companies: time warner, i.b.m., sears, wal-mart, k-mart, wall green are all saying they're going to take their people off their insurance and put them in exchange. those are companies making decisions how they want to insure people -- >> because of the way obamacare works. >> let me finish. before
house briefing to get under way. the press secretary jay carney likely to face more questions about obama care and the political tell-all book "double rap." >>> hello, i'm wolf blitzer reporting from washington. more on the investigation into the fatal shooting over at the los angeles international airport. 23-year-old paul ciancia. police say he's the shooter. he remains in critical condition today, unable to speak with investigators. but we are starting to learn more about ciancia. and possibly some of his motives. we're also learning more about what happened just before the shooting, from someone who knew ciancia and his roommates. >> he asked one of the roommates if he could have a ride to the airport. >> why did he need a ride? >> he said he was going back home, either that his dad was kind of sick and he had to deal with family issues. >> did anyone ever see a ticket? >> no. he also didn't mention what day he had to leave. that morning yes, he doesn't knock, just opens the door and says, i need to leave. can you take me now? >> did he ever express any hatred toward the governm
. over the past couple of days, some of the people involved david axelrod, jay carney suggested that was never a consideration. was this a big deal or not a big deal? >> a big deal in the following sense. have you a presidency at the low point, after the last round of budget negotiations in 2011. the president's poll numbers are down. he's seen as weak. bill dal y, white house chief of staff at the time, look, we have to consider, as he said the other day, we have to consider every option. one thing to look at, do the due diligence, lets test it, lets see how obama clinton does compared to obama/biden. now, when the results came back it showed it didn't help that much and didn't go forward. but it is sort of extraordinary. if you think about the white house chief of staff, the top advisers. it was a very small group that knew about this david plouffe, axelrod, the president's pollster. for that group of people to say, look, we need to take a look at this, even though they knew it was a long shot and there would be a downside. it was certainly part of the history of this administ
's white house briefing with jay carney. it was due to start at 12:30 eastern. it will get underway at 1:15. we expect lots of questions about the healthcare.gov website and the rollout of the health care law. centers for medicare and medicaid administrator marilyn tavenner testified about that liveit on c-span3. here is a look. >> thank you, chairman camp and ranking member levin and members of the committee. we launched on october 1st one. key provisions affordable care acthe the new marketplace where people without health insurance including those who could not afford it and not part after group plan could go to get affordable coverage. we know consumers are having difficulty enrolling via the marketplace website. it is important to note that the affordable care act however is however more than just a website. it create as new market which allows people to access quality, affordable health care. it i it allows them to have insurance options. it create as pooling of consumers into statewide group plans that i can spread the riss between sick people and healthy people, between youngli a
abandoned because it would significantly improve obama's chances. at the white house, press secretary jay carney said obama never consider dropping biden from the ticket. >> what i can tell you without a doubt is that the president never considered that and had anyone brought that idea to him, he wouldn't have -- would have laughed at out of the room. >> on sunday, president obama campaign in virginia for democratic candidate terry mcauliffe ahead of tuesday's gubernatorial election. he is squaring off against republican convention alley, virginia's attorney general. obama seized on the anti-to the recent government shutdown in his remarks. >> you have seen some extreme faction of the republican party that has shown again and again and again that they are willing to hijack the entire party and the country and the economy and grind progress to an absolute halt if they don't get 100% of what they want. [boos] this isn't just speculation, we saw it last month. here in virginia you felt the pain of the first government shutdown in 17 years. and there are a lot of states that felt more of the
. >>> in the meantime the white house admitted in the form of jay carney, it's true, some medical policies don't meet the affordable care act's minimum standard and so they don't qualify, you won't be able to keep them. think about that. the white house is now admitting that they have known for, as it turns out, since 2010, according to nbc news and the "wall street journal," they knew back then that there are many, in fact millions of americans who would lose their health insurance policies. and yet the president was out all the way from 2009 until recently saying this. >> we will keep this promise to the american people. if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. period. if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan. period. no one will take it away. no matter what. first, if you're one of the more than 250 million americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance. this law will only make it more secure and more affordable. >> anyone frustrated yet? what was sold versus what's being told to the american people now
think he's put out statements through jay carney that he would never go that far. that he's been very careful in walking the line that has been walked before in terms of presidential power and opportunities and options. >> well, that may be the case. but the government, in general, the administration and the directives that come down from, by tone or other avenues has been to expand government powers and to take, take some leeway here and there with certain, like for example the irs investigations of tea party people. i mean, i think we are all aware that there's more government overreach than we've experienced before in our personal lives. and i think that's what appeals to ted cruz's, to his constituents. now some of what he -- >> yes, but those people work at -- but kathleen, we're talking about the president here. did he appoint those people at irs or did w? >> apparently the president has nothing to do with anything. >> no. >> he pleads ignorance on everything that comes along in the news these days. >> wasn't that a holdover person? you pointed the case of irs. so i have to go a
was one of about 30 officials before he spoke in the park. jay carney gave a somewhat tortured response to a simple question. does the president support barbara buono. >> i haven't done asked that question in a while. i will have to get back to you. i think he met with her in new jersey earlier this year. i don't have updates on that. he supports her, but i honestly -- sorry. >> the candidate for governor, rodney dangerfield. i'm sure you are saying this is frustrating. this is a governor running for higher office. he had ethical clouds surrounding him and it's something we need to discuss. there is no one more enamored with chris christie than himself. the fact is that there serious issues and if women knew and that's what we were trying to get through with that special election that this governor scheduled for u.s. senate and our election on the fifth, people are focusing on it. people say wait a minute, this guy is anti-choice, anti-marriage equality and anti-planned parenthood and anti-pay equity. he is aligned with the tea party with social values. >> it is hard for a large state l
jay carney finally acknowledged yesterday that to some extent that promise is being broken. watch this. >> so it's true that there are existing health care plans on the individual market that doesn't meet those minimum standards and therefore do not qualify for the affordable care act. there are some can be grandfathered if people want to keep insurance that is substandard. martha: meanwhile republican senator ted cruz, raising concerns over people not only losing their current insurance, but losing their jobs over obamacare. watch this. >> one. real problems with obamacare is people all over the country are losing their health insurance because of obamacare. you've got millions of people who are losing their jobs, who are being forced into part-time work, who are seeing health insurance premiums skyrocket and whose insurance is being canceled right now because of obamacare. listen -- >> any other issue but you chose this one? >> it is number one job killer in the country. martha: now we're starting to see the actual effects of all of this in numbers with hundreds of thousands of peopl
person signed up. jay carney had an answer though. listen to his explanation for these numbers. watch. >> what you have learned from selected cherry picked leaks from republican committee is that there are notes out there from a contractor that make estimates about figures related to enrollees in the early days of this process. the web site wasn't functioning very well on october 1st or october 2nd. in fact, it hasn't been functioning well in the first month since the launch. if the implication from this disclosure is that the web site wasn't working effectively on october 1st. i think that is a dog bites man story. we know that. and when we have fully compiled data about enrollment in the middle of this month for october. we're going to release it. >> how long does it take to get data from a web site. can i look up any web site. >> it has to work, first. >> you can find out who is on the site instantly. they claim they don't have these numbers. they are mad that the numbers that they don't have leaked. >> sometimes i feel sorry for jay carney sometimes i just look you are in a no-win
is the kind of propaganda this administration has done since day one. >> jay carney pushed back on all this saying they knew numbers would be bad at the beginning and obviously that was exacerbated by the fact the website was not working well. they think the website is getting better now and as people shop around as you were just talking about over time they are actually going to start enrolling but on the question of why they haven't released some of their own numbers, here's what he said. >> why don't you at least put out a reasonable preliminary number and show us some transparency. >> we'll have a reasonable accurate number as we promised we would on a monthly basis consistent with the data release that you see for other programs. and the focus here -- for understandable reasons, i guess, is on how low the number might be and i think -- listen to me now. they were always going to be low. enrollment figures for the first one. that's how enrollment periods work. >> that first month is up. here we are november 1st. where are those numbers? jay kacarney says they need abo two more week
assume you're going to still try to get -- hold on for a moment, leah. jay carney, the white house press secretary is now speaking about this incident at l.a.x. >> los angeles international airport by alissa an, the deputy chief of staff. he will be regularly updated on unfolding events there. at this point, the lead is l.a.p.d. but we're obviously at the federal level in touch with law enforcement officials on the ground and will -- the president can say about what he's been told, what the understanding is from officials on what happened there? >> i have no more information than what you're learning from reports out of l.a. right now to convey. >> on a separate topic, intelligence officials say the leader of the pakistani taliban was killed in a u.s. drone strike on friday. can you confirm that he was killed? >> there you hear that the president has been informed about what is going on. lisa monaco, his homeland security adviser is briefing the president. i want to bring back lea osbourne. one of the eyewitnesses we have been talking to. you were there, sitting in a chair near your gate
, do you agree with jay carney your white house colleague, that it would be awesome if rand paul ran for president in 2016? >> i suspect that the the 2016 republican nomination is going to be awesome no matter who runs. >> okay, dan pfeiffer, thanks very much. >>> let's go to senator rand paul right there. you heard dan pfeiffer say it's going to be an awesome race. are you going to be a part of it? >> we actually are working with the white house and the last time i was with the president i told them there are some things that we can agree on, one, let's let companies bring money back home. we could double the amount of money in infrastructure if we did that and that's something that we could find an agreement on. >> here we go. that's one point that rand paul and the white house could be agreeing on. let's talk about the nsa. we heard dan pfeiffer weigh in on that. he said that clemency for edward snowden isn't under consideration at all, should it be? >> i don't know the facts. i don't know whether any information has been distributed to foreign powers. i'm concerned that the natio
authority there. >> jay carney was asked the question whether the president would consider an executive order barring lgbt workplace discrimination if the legislation was unable to be secured in the house and senate. apparently he did not directly answer that question. >> he leaves the door open in an interesting way. >> thanks, take care. >> coming up, new comments from attorney general eric holder about security in our nation's airports right in time for the holidays after friday's deadly shooting at lax. plus, questions over whether lax and other airports are secure enough. then a disturbing story that's been trending all weekend long. hard to believe but true, a pregnant woman was attacked while talking to her soldier husband overfacetime while he was deployed overseas. he watched this on face time. what police say led to this horrific crime and we'll have an update on her and the baby. >>> and join our conversation on twitter, at tamronhall and my team at newsnation. peace of mind is important when you're running a business. century link provides reliable it services like multi-lay
is satisfied with the rollout, jay carney reiterated with palpable frustration they're working 24/7 to get the website and all of the rest up to par. >> in the meantime, we're, you know, busting rocks every day to fix the website. so that it's up and running at a standard that's acceptable for the vast majority of americans by the end of the month. >> four weeks to go, and you can tell, they know that the clock is ticking. joining me is congressman jerrold nadler, democrat of new york. and congressman, you know, do you get the sense that the problems with the website have now completely obscured the central point, which is that the benefits that the affordable care act potentially offers to people? >> no, i don't think they have completely obscured it. i think they have taken the place in the press for a little time. but again, this was a major, major social change, the most major change since medicare and medicaid 35 years ago. and in two years, no one is going to remember this if the law works. >> right. >> if most people get insurance, which they will, that's cheaper and more effective,
spokesman jay carney said today. >> the history of mistrust between the united states and the islamic republic of iran is deep. it will not be erased overnight. what we are doing now is not truth. we are in serious substantive negotiations that have the possibility of stopping the advance of iran's nuclear program f. and gesht a long-term comprehensive solution. i've been to more demonstrations in iran than i can count. they're a good part theater as well as public opposition. i've been to them where people are small, laughing when they're taking part. that said, there is real optimism and skepticism. that's something that people like the president are very aware. they have to show results very quickly, much the way politicians here, the administration has to show results as well. they have to so the iranians willing to put real restrictions on the nuclear program. as that is happening, politicians in iran have to be aware of the public opposition, and you'll have some playing up. the white house was saying, hey, we're not paying attention to that, but the talks that are taking player
, the white house yesterday, jay carney effectively said yes there are some plans that don't meet the minimum standard of the affordable care act. that is, in fact, true. they would say though our plan allows you to get benefits. yes maybe your premium goes up, your deductible goes up but you have more benefits including for mental health. what did the white house tell you >> they basically made the same point. they said look anyone who is losing their insurance is losing their insurance because it doesn't meet our standards. and that this new policy will give people more protection, they can't be dropped because they get sick, they by and large will have a richer package of benefits. the problem is a lot of the folks we talked to who have received these notices first were shocked that they got them because they thought the president had told them they wouldn't but also they didn't like the government telling them what they had to buy. and they in some cases were very happy with the more bear bones policy that they thought met their needs, and cost them less. now there was one individual who
rollout, we are learning that six people were able to sign up on day one. yesterday, jay carney said this is a dog bite man's story as we talk about health care but yet this is a big deal and we're learning more. is it accurate or wise i should say for the white house to downplay this as dog bite's man? >> i think they have to accept the fact this was a big screw up. i think new york mayor laguardia said when i make a mistake, it's a butte. this is something the president cares about more than anything in his legacy, the major contribution he has made to the social safety net. it will ultimately succeed, but it only succeed if he keeps his credibility. i think it's important as we go through this rocky period he is seen the man you go to. he always has to tell the whole truth. bobby kennedy used to say hang a lantern on your problem and let people know what your problem is so they will begin to trust you more. real quickly a yes or no. do you think the president needs to come out and talk more about this? >> no. i think he needs to be candid about the fact the issue is still this one
press sect jay carney called the figures cherry picked leaks by republicans and not official numbers. the administration says the website's glitches are making it tough to get actual totals and they are lowering expectations for the initial enrollment report. expected in a few weeks. we told new advance that there would be low enrollment figures initially. >> with the white house in damage control mode, some are wondering if mr. obama is facing a second term curse like ronald reagan who was plagued by the iran-contra affair or bill clinton who was embroiled in the monika lewinsky scandal. >> there is something to be said about the historical antecedents here. it's hard to be president and more difficult to be president in this day and age where controlling your message on any given day is virtually impossible. >> now, dave kemp, charp of the house ways and means committee, has written a letter to cms, one of the agencies in charge of the website asking for as much information as possible about those enrollment figures. the obama administration has called in some of the biggest names
consideration? >> yes. >> david, white house spokesman jay carney asked yesterday if president obama knew about any potential v.p. swaps, listen to this -- >> you're saying he was aware of this or was not -- >> i think if you ask the people who were more directly running the campaign that question, they might have an answer. i'm not aware that he was aware of it. >> in those conversations about kicking biden off the ticket here, is it possible the president may not have been aware of those discussions happening around him? >> i think chris is right in what she said. i covered the campaign. there were moments where the president seemed to have losst some of the momentum he had four years ago. hillary clinton was riding high in the polls as secretary of state. there was public talk among pundits and so on. i'm sure the campaign were thinking about every potential option. whether it reached the level of president obama or was serious, it looks unlikely. david plouffe is adamant about that. i think this is a lot of talk. biden's role in this white house has been periodically questioned about how se
secretary jay carney. he said, kate, this is conflating disparate issues. >> brianna, thank you so much for that update. let's stay at the white house. the white house is responding to deadline pressure clarifying that americans will have until march 31st to sign up for obama care. this as the president's advisers are fighting back against another claim and denying that millions of people would lose coverage because of obama care. chief medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta is joining us from atlanta. for more on this. a lot of confusion it seems like was created yesterday, sanjay. what are you hearing about the reports that millions of americans could be losing their existing coverage because that was a claim you heard over and over again from the president when he was campaigning for it. if you like your doctors and insurance plan, you can keep it. >> well, here's the bottom line. you have about 15 million people who buy insurance on their own right now, meaning they're not getting it through their employer. it's that population of people we're talking about specifically. what has ha
